I once made a slow-cooker version of pea and ham soup from a recipe book my husband was given when he left home. To say it was awful does not even begin to describe the disaster that was the dish. I kicked myself for not sticking with my tried-and-true family recipe and vowed never to go ‘off script’ again.
And I didn’t… Until now! This cheat’s version of a traditional pea and ham soup uses lentils instead of peas and bacon instead of ham — but tastes exactly the same. It’s delicious, healthy and very easy to pull together. It’s also very filling. Enjoy!
